Vortrag (in dt. Sprache): Through curating and writing, Frederikke Hansen has been engaging feminist and queer politics within Western contemporary art since the mid-1990s. Situating herself and her practice in a critical dialogue with fellow cultural workers and activists, she is steadily developing a curatorial methodology that is consistent with her social and ethico-political principles. In short, her principles and practice could be described as deconstructing privilege. Part of that process entailed emigrating from increasingly xenophobic and right-leaning Denmark and settling in Kreuzberg, Berlin in 1997 and, eight years later, founding the curatorial platform Kuratorisk Aktion together with Tone Olaf Nielsen.
